Dear God,

i believe you created all things, know all things, see all things; i believe that nothing happens without your knowledge.  i have to be honest, i know there are a great many things that i don't know, nor do i understand, but i'm finding it quite difficult to practice the things that i've been taught. Loving others, forgiveness, turning the other cheek, etc. Around this time of year, i grit my teeth, cry, ask for forgiveness for my words and thoughts, pray for insight, and cry some more. 

God i know you've seen all the things that African Americans have, and continue to deal with because of peoples prejudice. But for the life of me i can't figure out why you see all, know all, and still allow awful things to happen to us. You created me just like this, but why.  Why create a people that others would deem inferior and mistreat.  All the while those people continue to prosper.

i don't understand it. i don't know why you allow it. i don't know how long evil will continue to prosper. and i don't know how much is too much for us to bear. But i do know that we have overcome incredible obstacles. let down naysayers.  and Continued to trust in You.

So please, please, don't allow all that we have gone, and continue to go through for naught.
